Frame TV 2019 , turns off when going into art mode

It appears to be impossible to do the following 

- enter art mode by tapping power quickly

- using the home menu

- using smart things 

 

all of these cause the TV to shut down

 

also connecting over Bluetooth does the same 

 

and - it’s not possible to preview or use a picture for art mode in smart things 

 

the smart things app can work as a remote and can control the tv

 

is this a known issue , or does it need returning ?

Try a full reset? Mine doesn’t do any of these things.

I bought the 55" version a week ago and have the same problem. I contacted Samsung about this and performed a reset which didn't work. They initially wanted me to return the TV but managed to get an engineer sent out instead. They have been today and have ordered a new part for this which will hopefully fix the issue.

Same problem here.

Just bought the frame 55. 

Cannot switch to art mode - screen goes black/ off.

Cannot set/ upload art from smart things app. 

Cannot connect tv to phone via smart view app. 

Four days of frustration - twitter help, web help, email, live chat, phone... getting nowhere.

Hi 

 

it it was purchased from Currys around 20th July. It never worked out of the box.  A case is now open with Samsung support,  they logged in remotely , were stumped , and it’s now been escalated.  Will keep this thread updated

so just as an update - Samsung support were useless,  they kept wanting to remote into the TV, then factory reset, then rinse repeat, scratch heads, claim they escalated it,  and never call back.  So its back to Currys.  Will see if a new one sorts it

So 5 days of trying to sort this out - case escalated, looking for solutions. 

I have asked Samsung to view this thread to recognise there are others with the same issue, in the hope they find a common denominator, and a solution. 

 

Can i I ask what mobile device you are using for the smart things app?

I've attempted to use the SmartThings App on S10+, iPhone and iPad.  It doesn't work on either device.
